It was another good night last night at Sidewinder. Definitely the place to be for those of a modernist bent once a month for a drink, chat, listen and dance. These are the 45s that came out of my box. Thanks to Dave Edwards and Giles Plumpton for inviting me and everyone who braved the rain.

  1. Thanks. It was really unusual to be given such a long set so managed to cover quite a lot of ground.

  2. Penny drops - I didn't clock the William Bell "signature tune" at the time.

    A grand set.
